My girlfriends and I sat out back in the garden after running a 5K in Central Park. The service was polite and the food was delish! There was a deal for $17.50 for a main, side, and mimosa...but we opted to do a la carte anyway. I had the omelette with spinach and mushrooms..it's really cool because it's an open face omelette "italian style". It comes with tasty little home fries. Also their cappuccino was very good! It came out to $17/person which is totally worth it. Great value, great time.

We had dinner on Wednesday evening for the first time here and loved it. The atmosphere was lovely and although it was jammed the service was attentive. Enjoyed the appetizers as well as the dinner. Everything was delicious. Will definitely return.

went there for dinner on a Monday, the restaurant was pretty crowded but it didn't take us long to be seated on a nice spot. When the food started to come out they were all very good surprises, everything very tasty. Didn't get to see their yard seats but the ones inside were already very good, with a nice atmosphere going on with basically just couples hanging out. Service was pretty good and efficient also.

Went there with four friends. Bartender nice. Sat in back at two tiny tables too samll for 4 people to dine. The food is a 4 out of 10. Getting basics like a fork should not be something you have to ask for. Pasta is off. Gnocchi so bad as it was not tender and it was mealy. The black truffle sauce was WAY too salty to enjoy. Cheeses were served cold. Duck Ragu With Pappardelle was so bad did not eat it. Duck tough and over salted. Pappardelle over cooked hard and had no flavor was like chewing gum.

Casual Italian restaurant without the cliche Italian dishes. No gummy lasagna, calzones or spaghetti and meatballs. The gnocchi was very good (served in truffle oil and a cream sauce) and the crab cakes (appetizer) were also delicious. We were there on Meatball Monday and trid two different meatball appetizers-nice but not worth the trip.

Usually we pass on desserts at Italian restaurants (usually too many other options in neighborhood) but the tiramisu here was actually very very good.

All in all a 4/5. Not great but not a disappointment either....
